Save On Costs, Increase Tenant Comfort And Avoid Costly Breakdowns

Staying on top of the gas safety in a property you’re renting out may seem like an extra hassle. Still, as a landlord, you have a number of responsibilities to take into consideration. Cutting corners on gas safety in your properties can have severe impacts, so it pays to understand what your obligations are.
To take some of the headaches away, we’ve pulled together a guide on everything you need to know about gas safety in a rented property here.

5 Frequently Asked Question by Landlord

All landlords in the UK are required to provide or carry out three things:

  1. An annual gas safety check
  2. Records of the Gas Safety record (sometimes called a Gas Safety Certificate or CP12 record)
  3. Ongoing maintenance of gas appliances

When tenants vacate rented premises, Landlords need to ensure that gas fittings and appliances are safe before re-letting. Appropriate checks should be carried out and any unsafe equipment rectified or removed before a new tenancy begins.

If you are a landlord who needs advice on getting a gas safety or CP12 record, or you need to know how to safely maintain your gas appliances, read on.

Once a year, landlords should arrange for a Gas Safe registered Home Expert to visit their property to ensure gas fittings and appliances are up to safety standards. Once your gas safety check is complete, you’ll be issued with a Gas Safety or CP12 record.

 

the annual gas safety check involve:

A Gas Safe registered Home Expert will carry out the following inspections at your property:

  • Check that appliances are well ventilated and that there is a constant supply of fresh air enabling the gas to burn properly
  • Check the installation and appliances for gas tightness
  • Check that all safety devices are working effectively
  • Inspect the flue or chimney to make sure all fumes leave the property via the appropriate means
  • Declare an appliance unsafe if they find any faults
  • Make sure that gas appliances are not being misused e.g. a cooker must not be used to heat a room

Please note: if you’re a landlord whose tenants have brought any of their own gas appliances, you are responsible for any pipework that supplies gas to them.

You might hear the Landlords’ Gas Safety record being referred to as a ‘CP12’. It’s the same document. CP12 is an abbreviation of CORGI Proforma 12, named because CORGI was the official regulatory body for UK gas safety between 1991 and 2009. In 2009 CORGI was replaced by the Gas Safe Register and the document adopted other names like the Landlord Gas Safety Certificate or the Gas Safety Record. They all mean the same thing.

Landlords are required by law to have their Gas Safety record updated every year, to prove that all the life-saving gas safety checks have been made at your property. Once your gas safety check is completed, you’ll be issued with a Gas Safety or CP12 record. As the landlord of the property, you are required to give a copy to your tenants within 28 days or give one to new tenants when they move in.

Top tip: It’s also a great idea as a responsible landlord to show new tenants how to turn off the gas at the mains and tell them what to do in a gas emergency.

If you want to save on the cost of your Gas Safety check, our Pace Landlord Protection Plan, which comes with an optional Gas Safety Certificate (CP12) and boiler service,

After a Gas Safe registered Home Expert has visited your property and completed your annual check, they will document the following on the record:

  • The date on which the appliance or flue was checked
  • The address of your property at which the appliance or flue is installed
  • The name and address of the Landlord of the premise or where appropriate, their agent, at which the appliance or flue is installed
  • A description and location of each appliance and flue checked
  • The faults and defects identified and any action required or taken to fix them
  • The results of operational safety checks carried out on the appliances
  • The name, signature and registration number of the engineer who conducted the check

Landlords in England are required to ensure carbon monoxide alarms are fitted in every room with a solid fuel heating appliance, including open fireplaces being used/not blocked off.

gas tips1

The legislation applies to all landlords renting out a property with fixed combustion appliances of any kind, with the exception of appliances used exclusively for cooking. landlords are also required to fit both smoke and carbon monoxide alarms when building, extending or renovating, or when installing a new, or replacing an old, fuel-burning appliance.

Wherever your location, it’s vital to protect your tenants and your property with smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Carbon monoxide poisoning can be life-threatening and with no smell or taste it’s difficult to tell if there’s a leak. If the carbon monoxide alarm goes off or you suspect there is a gas leak, you must:

  • Call the National Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999
  • Switch off the appliance and shut off the gas supply at the meter control valve
  • Open all doors and windows to ventilate the room
  • Your tenant should follow the guidance provided to them by the Gas Emergency Services

If you or your tenants can smell gas in the property follow our guide for more information

If you can smell gas or you think you may have a gas leak, call the National Gas Emergency Service Provider (ESP) from the outside of your property on 0800 111 999. The number is free and available 24 hours a day.

Gas tip2according to Gas Safe, in a gas emergency it is important to act quickly and take the following steps:

  1. Get fresh air immediately. Open all doors and windows to ventilate the room.
  2. Switch off the appliance and do not use it again until it has been checked by a Gas Safe Registered engineer
  3. Turn off the gas supply at the mains and do not operate any electrical switches. Do not turn your gas appliances back on until it has been deemed safe by a qualified engineer.
  4. Call the National Gas Emergency line on 0800 111 999 (further information below).
  5. If you, or someone else, are feeling ill, move to a position outside the building and visit your GP or the hospital immediately. Tell them that your symptoms may be related to carbon monoxide poisoning.
  6. Contact your Pace Gas Safe Registered engineer to check and fix the appliance.
  7. Carbon monoxide poisoning is an uncommon but potentially fatal outcome of poor gas works and can be hard to detect without an all-important carbon monoxide alarm (If you don’t have one of these in your home put it at the top of your to-do list).
